Author Talk: A Country Of Cities
Thursday, Apr 24, 2014
Vishaan Chakrabarti will discuss his recently released book, A Country of Cities, which argues that well-designed cities are the key to solving America's great national challenges: environmental degradation, unsustainable consumption, economic stagnation, rising public health costs and decreased social mobility. The presentation will be followed by an open discussion with the author about cities, suburbs, and exurbs, and how they developed across the 50 states and their roles in prosperity and globalization, sustainability and resilience, and health and joy.
